Green, Langat tabbed TCU Student-Athletes of the Week
March 14, 2006
FT. WORTH, Texas -- TCU seniors Celeste Green of the women's rifle team and Jackson Langat from the men's track and field team have been selected for the school's weekly accolades. It is the first honor of the season for Green, while Langat picks up his second.
Langat ran a season-best time of 1:47.02 to take the individual crown in the 800 meters at the 2006 NCAA Indoor Track Championships on March 11. He capped off his indoor eligibility with All-America honors in both the 800 meters and as part of the 4x400 meter relay team that finished eighth (3:08.82) at the national indoor meet.
The first shooter in school history to participate in the NCAA Rifle Championships, Green finished 10th in the individual smallbore event with a three-position score of 581.
The 2003 NRA All-American was nearly perfect from the prone position, finishing with a score of 199 out of a possible 200. She added marks of 186 and 196 from the standing and kneeling positions, respectively, for an aggregate total of 581, to place 10th in the field of 36.
Green's total marks the second-best 60-shot smallbore score in school history, behind only her NCAA-qualifying mark of 586 set on Feb. 11-12 against the Virginia Military Institute. The senior now owns the school's four best scores in the event.
